We are excited about the 2016-2017 school year. We look forward to collaborating with all parents, students, administrators, and staff to make this year an eventful journey for all Kennard I.S.D.students.
The school counseling program, when fully implemented, will provide:
Opportunities for students to receive counseling and guidance in the academic, career, and personal areas
Assistance for students to become responsible adults who can develop realistic and fulfilling life plans based on clear understanding of themselves and their needs, interests, and skills
Support for students to develop positive character traits and skills to become productive citizens
Accountability by using data to drive program development and evaluation
We at Kennard I.S.D. also believe:
All children are unique and should be treated with respect and dignity.
Every student can succeed.
Learning is a lifelong process.
Fostering a positive self-image is the collaborative effort of the school, home, and community which leads to responsible and productive citizenship.
The diverse needs of all students must be addressed through the guidance and counseling program.
We are here to serve you in the following ways:
Information regarding high school graduation plans, course selections, etc.
Personal issues (problems at home and/or school)
Referrals for one-on-one/group counseling to outside programs/organizations
Information about local resources for basic needs (food, shelter, clothing, etc.)
Referrals for special programs (Special Education, 504, Gifted/Talented, etc.)
